Will my polly beak deformity go away after a year or so? (photos)
I'm into my 4 months of post op. I used to have a hump, but that was shaved down and added a little thin silicone thing. After about a month, my nose was straight &no bump. But after 4 months, it seems like my tip is starting to droop causing a pollybeak. It's noticeable from side&front. When I smile from front, nose forms a V shape which I didn't have before. When there's also bright flash photography, you can sort of notice where my bone was shaved down.

Progressive return of bridge bump and pollybeak deformity
Its hard to be specific without an examination, but you could certainly consider a revision procedure once your nose has healed further.
You should discuss your concerns with your surgeon as that is who has the best idea of what was done during your original surgery.
In the meantime, you can can read more about pollybeak deformity repair at my web reference link below.

Only re operation on the "polly beak" deformity is the option. Sorry for your poor result in the initial surgery.///

If you had a reduction of your hump and then silicone implant, then the implant has migrated forward and is causing your pollybeak. This will not go away on its own and will require a revision.
